In 1994, Marcin Marten formed Kaliber 44 together with his brother Michał "Joka" Marten.[5] The group was joined by Piotr Łuszcz performing under pseudonym Mag Magik I.[5] In 1995, Kaliber 44 was signed to S. P. Records, and a year later their debut album Księga Tajemnicza. Prolog was released. In 1998, after the group recorded its second album W 63 minuty dookoła świata, Piotr "Magik" Łuszcz left the band and formed Paktofonika. Kaliber 44's third album 3:44 was released in 2000.

After the release of 3:44, Abradab started his solo career. On 6 June 2004, he released his first solo album Czerwony album through S. P. Records. The album charted at No.21 on OLiS. The album featured a popular song titled "Rapowe ziarno 2 (Szyderap)", for which a music video was released. The album won Fryderyk award in the "Album of the Year - Hip-Hop/R&B" category, while "Rapowe Ziarno 2 (Szyderap)" received a nomination in the "Video of the Year" category.[6]
